( — 4th of August,2013) Calgary, Alberta — It doesn’t matter how safe a motorist may very well be, he can’t avoid rocks and debris. And the windshield is usually the first victim.

Like any automobile repair, windshield repairs normally takes time and money. But the windshield is the easiest and most inexpensive to repair, if performed early. A delay in the repair could cause the fracture to disperse, thus costing more.

Many factors can impact the development of your windshield crack. Temperature, pot holes and gravel can all accelerate the life of the fracture. Water and dirt will find its way into the fracture and freeze, making the fracture grow. To avoid further damage, the crack will need to be repaired as soon as possible.

Windshield repair kits can be inexpensive as well as a possible time-saver. These kits works extremely well on breaks no bigger than a quarter. They usually include a bottle of resin, suction cups and adhesives. Window cleaner along with a steady hand are also needed.

“Even if you can’t cause it to perfect again, a windshield repair kit may prevent the damage from spreading further,” . Prices ranges from $10 to $20 and take about 60 minutes to repair.

But once the ultraviolet light cures the resin, the repair can’t be done again. “It could damage it more,” said David Bryce, owner of Windshield Repair Pros of Calgary.
Reported by Bryce and other windshield repair centers, this repair is better left to the professionals. “The pros know how to draw vacuum and apply pressure so there’s no air,” Bryce said.

“It’s as with any repair,” said Bryce. “Any contaminants inside the chemical substance can impact the repair.”

Many glass repair centers provide a mobile unit for a small charge. Repair personnel will repair your car wherever it’s most convenient for the customer. The process can take 20 to 30 minutes and, depending on the dimensions of the crack, should cost $50 to $100. “And it is guaranteed for life,” Bryce said.
